“Absolutely brilliant service”

Written on: 04/07/2014 by Lindseyx370 (1 review written)

We bough a 10 year old peugeot 206 3 months ago for £1500 and then ran into problems with it. Our ECU broke and we were told it would be £695 to replace witha new one. We were constantly told by various mechanics and companies that the ECU couldnt be repaired and it was very hard to find a replacement that matches the car. We though we were going to have to scrap the car but as a last resort we tried the ECU Doctor and thank God we did!!! They tested our Ecu and sent us back a repaired ECU… Read Full Review

“Great service - ECU repair”

Written on: 19/05/2014 by Bazza1955 (1 review written)

I had an intermittent engine warning light problem that so called VW/Audi ‘specialists’ couldn't resolve. After a failed attempt to identify the issue (and £220 from me) they suggested a replacement ECU could be the answer (with no offer of a refund of the £600 / £700 cost if it wasn't the answer). In searching internet forums for a diagnosis, I saw a recommendation for ECU Doctor and got in touch. The initial conversation was very helpful and their service very efficient (I took the… Read Full Review

“Vauxhall Meriva”

Written on: 08/05/2014 by SashaReynolds340 (1 review written)

Since buying my Vauxhall Meriva Enjoy 11 months ago I've had endless faults with my car. All have been fuel related, fuel pump, fuel relay system and cutting out constantly when the engine temperature reached over 80 degrees. After being told that the ECU needed replacing at £600 I contacted the ECU Doctor, they were very friendly and helpful. I had the ECU removed and dropped it over to them. It was repaired in a couple of days and was third of the price of a brand new ECU. I collected… Read Full Review

“Ford KA saved!”

Written on: 02/05/2014 by Stoutcv322 (1 review written)

Bought a lovely condition, low mileage KA luxury for my Daughter for £900 but within a couple of weeks it ran really rough. Spent a long time & a chunk of money trying to save it to no avail. Into Ford who diagnosed ECU at a replacement cost of £1300. This would scrap the car which was crazy considering the condition etc. Quick call to ECU doctor & sent them the unit. Within a VERY quick turnaround, the ECU came back with an extensive description of the fault including a very helpful wiring… Read Full Review

“Intermittent but persistent problems on 2006 Honda CRV...”

Written on: 11/04/2014 by djtip (1 review written)

Vehicle Honda CRV, 2006 model, 2.2 Turbo Diesel engine. Having had problems with my ECU intermittently for 9 months and having exhausted both my dealer's & Honda UK's customer service patience I needed an independent opinion. Towards the end I was getting an error on at least 50% of journeys, my OBD resetting tool was getting lots of use. Honda UK said they couldn't give me any more specific information, like wiring diagrams, ECU functional operating description. My dealer said the next thing… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2014

Please don't confuse ECU-Doctors.co.uk or Power tune with this company, these two companies are corrupt to the core. please check companies house to see if they are registered and paying tax. failure to do so will end up being poorer and still having issues with your ECU

Djtip's reply to Philpotty1972's Comment

Written on: 14/04/2014

Hi Philpotty,
I presume you are distinguishing between "THE-ecu-doctor.co.uk and the similarly named "ecu-doctor.co.uk".
I hadn't realised that there were two with very similar web addresses.
The company I had rebuild my ecu had 'the' in their web address and is located near Plymouth.
I can only repeat that they did a fantastic job.

“Quick, effective, polite and affordable.”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by adam_christie (1 review written)

Having come to the conclusion that the ECU in my wifes' Vauxhall Astra had developed a fault, I rang round various ECU Repair companies and was concerned to hear that I would be paying through the nose for my ECU to be checked and repaired. I understand that the ECU of a car can be an expensive bit of kit, but to charge nearly the same as an ECU to repair it was quite irritating. After doing some further research on the Vauxhall owners forms, I read that some of the members had has good… Read Full Review

“Peugeot Repair”

Written on: 12/02/2014 by Peugeot207 (1 review written)

I would just like to say, thank you very much for the service you have provided. You have saved me £1,765 by repairing my ECU which had water damage, instead of paying the garage to replace and reprogram to which I am extremely grateful as I would not have been able to pay such a high repair cost. Your service was speedy and efficient from beginning to end and enabled me to get my car back on the road in no time at all, which was a great relief. Repair was carried out Friday and it was… Read Full Review

“My car revived”

Written on: 10/02/2014 by PeKavs (1 review written)

I'm very pleased with the ECU doctor as my Rover 75 is now back on the road after you replaced the circuit board in my ECU which had been water damaged. The service you gave was excellent and the replacement arrived on Saturday morning which meant the turn around time was eight days from when I sent it to when I received it back… Read Full Review

“Great Service”

Written on: 07/01/2014 by Goldflash (1 review written)

I used this company as I had a series of faults showing on a Vauxhall where the ECU was bolted to the engine (clever!). After eliminating the faults showing on the diagnostics such as camshaft sensor or crankshaft sensor I contacted the ECU Doctor. They tested it, reported the fault and sorted it inside a week and never a problem again. This was done for a fraction of the prices quoted by the dealers. If I ever even suspect a problem with the electronics I would use these people first to check… Read Full Review

“Advice - intermittent vehicle shut down whilst driving ”

Written on: 01/01/2014 by Gwil26 (1 review written)

My vehicle is a 2003 Seat Arosa 1.4 TDi. The problem is that the fault can occur whilst driving rendering the car inoperable as it just dies. After a few minutes, it can be started again, however the car can gor for months without this happening and then I can have the problem 3 times in one day. The ECU Doctor promptly pointed me in the right direction with courteous and valuable advice. They were recommended to me and I thoroughly recommend them myself now… Read Full Review

“Time wasters”

Written on: 04/12/2013 by avoidInterspares (2 reviews written)

Rang, checked and double checked they were able to help with my ECU. After they assured me they could, I got the ECU removed from the car and paid £8 postage to send it to them Two days later they phoned and told me they were sorry but they can't look (let alone fix) at my ECU because they are unable to work on its type. When I questioned the checking by phone before I sent issue they just said sorry there was nothing they could do. They didn't even offer to refund my postage!! Bunch of time… Read Full Review

“Astra 'G' ECU Test and Rebuild”

Written on: 06/08/2013 by macbeda (1 review written)

Recommend to anybody who has a dead or dying ecu (even if you can afford to go to the main stealer). I was recommended to ECU Doctor by an auto electrician who only deals with the motor trade. Great response to all queries before I committed to the rebuild. Excellent professional service - car back up and running in less than a week. Many thanks to all at ECU Doctor who were involved. … Read Full Review

“Great all round service”

Written on: 16/05/2013 by smartmovebrabus (1 review written)

Chose ECU Doctor after reading all the reviews and gave them a call. From the first contact I felt the staff were friendly and helpful, even asking the engineer if they could test my particular ECU as it was not one they normally had. The answer was yes so I packed it up and sent it off. Got an emal back next morning saying the unit had arrived and would be looked at soon. Next day got a phone call patched through to the engineer. He explained that my ECU could not be tested past a few… Read Full Review

“shogun sport ECU - Just failed one day! Thank You Doc”

Written on: 27/04/2013

After reading a few reviews i was still a bit sceptical about sending my ECU off. But i am so glad i did. I phoned before hand to ensure they could repair my ecu type. They phoned to say they had received it. Two days later I then got a call to say they had found the fault and I asked them to go ahead and repair. The ECU was back the next day - great service (From sending to return 4 days). Initially it did not work and after conversation with Rob he asked me to return it so he could double… Read Full Review
